Letter: Agency auditors don't understand programs

I agree with “Denett: IGs are 'aggravating,' and overstep boundaries.”  My experience as an Air Force contracting officer with the agency auditors is that they don't often understand the mechanics of the execution of the program they are auditing. Often I have to bring them up to speed (e.g., what's the difference between a "contract" and a "program"?).
